The government have now confirmed that the formal transition journey from smaller employers to access the Apprenticeship Service has started this month, January 2020.

During this test phase (January to March), additional funding will be made available to fund up to 15,000 new starts through the service. Employers may make reservations for up to three apprenticeship starts on apprenticeship standards only.

The government have realised a new official guide detailing how apprenticeship funding for smaller employers will work, including details of funding bands and the apprenticeship levy.

Please click here to view the guidance ‘Apprenticeship funding for employers who do not pay the apprenticeship levy from January 2020’.

This document sets out the policy by which the government will initially operate the reservation of funds to support a managed and gradual transition to the new arrangements.

Aspiration Training will be actively supporting our employer partners with this transition and are available for support and advice.
